ST. CHARLES — In arena soccer, learning how to redirect is crucial to success. The St. Louis Ambush have learned to adjust both on and off the field. 

On January 5, Ambush Head Coach Greg Muhr announced his resignation following a 2-4 start to the season. With no replacement in site, Ambush Co-owner Jeff Locker took matters into his own hands. 

“I’m co-owner, general manager and now interim head coach,” Locker said. “I thought the best thing to do would be to keep the consistency and I’d step into the coaching role at least for the continuous season.”
He was right. Since the change, the Ambush are 3-1, including a win over the previously undefeated Kansas City Comets. 

“It’s definitely a good outcome because we’ve been winning games,” Ambush Forward Mohamed Ndiaye said.

The sentiment is shared by his teammates, including former Saint Louis University soccer player Robert Kristo. 

“Indoor is a lot about adjusting at times,” Kristo said. “that’s what we did really quickly.”

With still plenty of season left to play, it remains to be seen just how successful this team will be, but, if St. Louis has learned anything from the 2019 Blues… chances are the best is yet to come.
